I loved this hotel and appreciated so much the warm, friendly staff. My room and the hallways were immaculately clean, the bathroom was excellent with a big shower and lots of hot water. The beds were firm and comfortable, and I liked having blankets instead of a big duvet, which can be hot in the spring and summer. Towels are... More

There was a broken toilet seat in the bathroom. I almost fell into the toilet when I used it. The shower head was also in bad shape. When I showered in the morning, the shower head fell off the rack many times. The staff was also extremely rude during the check out because I let my spouse share the same... More

I stayed in this hotel recently for three nights. Getting to the hotel from Charles De Gaulle airport was a breeze on the RER train. The Luxembourg stop is just a short walk away from the hotel and the hotel's website gives good instructions. All the people working at the front desk spoke good English and were friendly and helpful.... More

Just returned home from a three night stay at this hotel in Paris. Our room was small but enough space for what we needed. The room was in pretty good condition but we had a really bad smell coming from the bathroom for the entire of our stay which let the room down for us. The walls are paper thin... More

Although I did not stay at this hotel, you may want to be aware of their tactics. I made an error by not cancelling my stay at this hotel. Their policy does say they will charge you for a no show. The part that did not sit well with me is that they claimed to have contacted me two times... More

Dear Sir, You're right, you did not cancel your reservation when the cancellation policy says that "If the reservations are not canceled one week prior to arrival, the hotel will charge the total amount of the stay during the high season." The reception staff tried in vain to join you at the time because, unlike most hotels, they were worried... More

The hotel was located close to reasonably priced eateries and within walking distance of several metro and RER stops. Rooms are small, staff was helpful. Got the feel of being in a Paris neighborhood.

the title says it all, really; this is a typical traditional Parisian hotel, so don't expect big rooms, but it is a very fine example of its kind. My tip would be to get a room overlooking the inner courtyard as it is really quiet. I slept like a log despite being next to the elevator on the 5th floor.... More

The hotel was fine, the usual tiny Parisian digs, the location is great. As New Yorkers my boyfriend and I are used to a brusk manner, but this establishment's customer service was truly appalling. I had admittedly dirtied one of their thin scratchy towels when I used it to wipe some mud off of a shoe. When we returned from... More

This is the hotel we prefer to stay in when visiting Paris. The rooms are not large - make sure you get on with your spouse/partner - but it is full of character, spotlessly clean, the desk team are always friendly and helpful - and it is very well located for Paris sightseeing (beside the Sorbonne) and close to the...

I stayed at this hotel from January 3-January 16 of this year. I was in Paris for a short school program and just needed an affordable, comfortable, and clean place to stay, and this hotel ended up being a great choice. I was given a small single room with simple furniture (bed, desk, closet, bedside table, and extra chair). Everything... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
